    Somerset Life is my favorite magazine, it inspires me to transform not only my home, but my life into a work of art. One that matches my artistically longing soul…sigh, definitely a work in progress with scraps of this and that everywhere to make the point. But Somerset Life pulls me in, with glorious pics and wonderful words that paint the picture of how life can become if I keep inspired and pick away at it, for my Life is a glorious sculpture in progress.

    I love the Somerset Home photos…that lovely shade of green and the flowers are so beautiful and elegant.

  40. Sylvia Gee says:

    All of your publications are magnificent which makes it very difficult to select just one, however I so love Where Women Create. My daughter gave me a copy for Christmas and I spent hours with it. I reluctantly passed it along to another creative soul for her to enjoy. Once I am in a new home, I will indeed subscribe to a few of your publications. You guys really are doing an outstanding job of bringing inspiration to creative people. Thank you so much.

  41. Pat Gay says:

    Green Craft is my ultimate! The 3 R’s (reduce, reuse and repurpose) plus frugality are my modus operandi.
